At this period, too, the Jesuit Skarga, the purest embodiment of Polish patriotism in literature, preached and wrote, calling upon all Poles to save their country, though that country was then so powerful that his cry of alarm was like the voice of a prophet.
During this period, the general course of literature was very like that of the preceding epoch, but more strongly marked with patriotic sadness as became a generation imbued with the constitutional ideas of the Four Years' Diet, but grown up under the shadow of a great catastrophe.
Poles had come to be ignorant of any other literature, and the pseudo-classic taste of the time, together with the glamour of Napoleon's victories, had an excessive influence upon both literature and politics, upon language and social life.

 Chapters On Jewish Literature - Chapter XXV. Moses Mendelssohn (By Israel Abrahams)
In 1763, he won the Berlin prize for an essay on Mathematical Method in Philosophical Reasoning, and defeated Kant entirely on account of his lucid and attractive style.
There was certainly some weakness among the men and women affected by the Berlin philosopher, for some discarded all positive religion, because the master had taught that all positive religions had their saving and truthful elements.
Suffice it to say that, while the old Jewish conception had been that literature and life are co-extensive, Jewish literature begins with Mendelssohn to have an independent life of its own, a life of the spirit, which cannot be altogether controlled by the tribulations of material life.

 The Project Gutenberg eBook of A Short Biographical Dictionary Of English Literature, by John W. Cousin.
The word "literature" is here used in a very wide sense, and this gives rise to considerable difficulty in drawing the line of exclusion.
There are very many writers whose claim to admission may reasonably be considered as good as that of some who have been included; but even had it been possible to discover all these, their inclusion would have swelled the work beyond its limits.
Perhaps his most valuable services to historical literature were his laying down the lines of the great Cambridge Modern History, and his collection of a library of 60,000 vols., which after his death was purchased by an American millionaire and presented to Lord Morley of Blackburn, who placed it in the University of Cambridge.

 GO BRITANNIA! Wales: Welsh Literature - Influence of Methodism
As far as Welsh literature is concerned, before the Nonconformist movement could develop fully, however, and especially that part dominated by the Methodists, there had to be a groundwork laid in the field of general education among the masses, mostly ignorant and all too often ignored by those in authority.
Ann died giving birth to a child before her thirtieth birthday, but she left behind a collection of letters, poems and hymns that vividly reflect not only her own religious awakening but also indicate the great emotion experienced by the movement in general.
She is regarded as the most important female writer in the history of Welsh literature before the twentieth century.

Within the breadth of world literature, we will be focusing on the literary epic--also sometimes recognized as the "male quest story"--across centuries and continents.
Finally, I hope that students who have already determined an interest in this general area of literature truly come in to their own with the papers they write for this course, understanding themselves to be scholars of a current discourse about postcolonial writings.
Ideally, students can express themselves in a way not often possible in college-level literature courses, but this is, keep in mind, a college literature course--not an art or creative writing course.

In the Falklands, the sportsman may sometimes kill more of the upland geese in one day than he can carry home; whereas in Tierra del Fuego it is nearly as difficult to kill one, as it is in England to shoot the common wild goose.
In the time of Pernety (1763), all the birds there appear to have been much tamer than at present; he states that the Opetiorhynchus would almost perch on his finger; and that with a wand he killed ten in half an hour.
At that period the birds must have been about as tame as they now are at the Galapagos.
